Researching online for ELDER
names in BORDERS SCOTLAND,
I was surprised to see I already
had an entry for HAWICK (BORDERS):

Edinburgh booksellers, but HAWICK
isn't very far from EDINBURGH:

Searching Genuki Scotland for
HAWICK, find:
http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/sct/ROX/Hawick
(with map):
"A considerable town and parish in the county of Roxburgh.
The town stands at the confluence of the small river Slitridge with the Teviot, and is well built.
It is a borough [burgh] of barony, independent of the lord of erection, and appears to have existed free from a very early period; but the rights and documents of the borough being either lost
or destroyed during the inroads of the English borderers, a charter was granted in 1545, by James Douglas Comes de Drumlanark, confirming to the burgesses such rights and lands as they formerly possessed. This charter was confirmed in toto by another, granted by Queen Mary, in May of the same year ... The parish of Hawick is of considerable extent, being nearly 16 miles long, and 4 1/2 broad. The general appearance is hilly; but none of the hills are of remarkable size, and all are green, and afford excellent sheep pasture ... Population in 1801, 2798." from Gazetteer of Scotland published 1806, Edinburgh.

See also Wilton parish which was in many ways a twin parish of Hawick.
Both make up the modern town of Hawick with Hawick parish lying to the south
of the River Teviot and Wilton parish to the north."

Searching GENUKI SCOTLAND for
SELKIRKSHIRE:
http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/sct/SEL

"SELKIRKSHIRE is of an irregular figure, extending 20 miles in length, bounded on the N. by Peebles-shire;
on the E. by Berwickshire;
on the S.E.
and S. by Roxburghshire;
on the S.W. by Dumfries-shire;
and on the W. by Peebles.
This county was formerly named the sheriffdom of Etterick forest, being covered with an extensive wood, which was stocked by great herds of red and fallow deer kept by the Scotish princes for the chace, who had houses for themselves and their train in different parts of the country. The wood is now almost entirely cut down, and the county is stocked with great flocks of sheep. The county is mountainous, and intersected by numerous streams, on the banks of which those plaintive airs were produced, the natural simplicity of which is the pride of the Scots and the admiration of strangers. Besides the Tweed, it is watered by the Etterick and Yarrow, two pastoral streams, the beauties of which are celebrated in Scotish song." from Gazetteer of Scotland published 1806, Edinburgh.

Note: Selkirkshire became part of the new Borders region in 1975, which in turn became the Scottish Borders council in 1996. However historical records used by genealogists and family historians are, in the main, structured around the older counties, like Selkirkshire."
